For playing online and for best compatibility, download RVGL
1.2 and RVGL are not supported. WolfR4 is just a launcher with tweaks for Re-Volt 1207 (v1.10 nocd). You can use them side-by-side, though.
Yes, you'll need to install Re-Volt 1.2 or RVGL.
Only for 1.2 and older versions:
In order to play through a network firewall or router, the following TCP and UDP ports must be open on the firewall or router: (Technical information (table) taken from Microsoft Knowledge Base)
|Protocol Type||Ports for Joining/Client Configuration||Ports for Host/Server Configuration|
|TCP||47624 Outbound||47624 Inbound|
|TCP Inbound and Outbound||2302-2400||2302-2400|
|UDP Inbound and Outbound||2302-2400||2302-2400|
The configuration varies between routers but the values remain the same and multiple sites around the web can aid with this.
It's recommended to set up a DHCP reservation or set a static LAN IP to prevent losing the ability to play and host due to a IP change.
Yes! You can grab some on Re-Volt Zone
Some tracks require a specific version to be installed. This will either be a recent alpha of 1.2 or RVGL due to the support of advanced custom features.
Tracks made with the in-game track editor are referred to as lego tracks. Since it's not too hard to create them, there are a lot of them on Re-Volt Zone. Thus, not so many people are interested in racing on them, so be prepared if you do decide to share your creation. Maybe be creative with the built-in editor and turn your track to a lego extreme track.
